that joe manchin has told a west virginia radio station that he is working with others, with democrats and republicans, on the universal background check. also on closing the gun show loophole. joe manchin, who, of course, campaigned for the office holding a rifle. this is a big change. >> well, for joe manchin, this is a critical time. he was just reelected to a full-term. he has a bit of breathing room, and this is an issue that he is willing to really try and find some ground. he will talk about his a-plus rating with the national rifle association, and a state like west virginia has a long history and kind of cultural tie to guns so, he understands it from that point of view. at the same time he is saying he wants to try to find a way to do more. now, today senator dianne feinstein introduced her assault weapons ban of 2013. she had been responsible for one back in the 1990s, and that is probably a step where joe manchin is not yet ready to go. is there a place where democrats can get together around something that relates to dealing with the gun violence issue, and also these othe

to start to feel differently. when you get a joe manchin of west virginia coming out and saying "i hunt, i don't need more than three bullets in a magazine" and you get other long-standing strong proponents of the second amendment saying it's time for some changes, we're moving into a different world. >> brown: dad kopel, do you thinthe pliti have changed here or do you expect -- well, there certainly will be challenges legislatively. will there also be challenges legally? >> there will certainly be legal challenges because one important thing -- the way things have changechanged is we now have the supreme court having affirmed that the second amendment is an individual right and the core of that individual right is self-defense. so joe manchin is welcome to his opinion-- which he's stated to people from his own state just a few days ago-- that he thinks the only reason people should have guns is for sports. bu that's not what the second amendment says. the second amendment says that self-defense is the core of the second amendment. so when you talk about taking away things because maybe t

. some of his biggest battles may be by democrats. >> this will be decided by swing votes. joe manchin in west virginia. right after newtown he suggested that he was going to flip on this. open to gun control, maybe supporting an assault weapons ban. this week joe manchin is pouring cold water on that and seems to be back pedaling. al franken is up for re-election. today he put out statement saying in principle he supports a ban on assault weapons but didn't say he supports legislation to do that. what the fear is i'm told by one top democratic senator an assault weapons ban suggests the president is taking weapons away that plays into republican arguments like marco rubio who said this today on fox. >> there is a second amendment. i didn't write the constitution. i believe in it. if you are going to do anything that impacts it. it better make some sense. here is the problem that i have by the president's own admission, the things that they're putting forward would have done nothing to prevent what happened, for example, in connecticut. >> and that's why top democratic senator is telli

new york times" today, democrat joe manchin of west virginia has faced doubts within his constituency who feel the second amendment is in jeopardy. "the times" describes the senator's attempts to reassure his constituents about the political climate in washington. he said i see no movement, no talk, no bills, no nothing. they remained skeptical. we give up our rights one piece at a time. a banker named charlie houck. he actually had a meeting and said how many of you are concerned you're going to lose your second amendment rights? all the hands went up. that shows how difficult it's going to be, even at this table, it seems to clear what needs to be done. that's not the way everybody feels. >> i'm disappointed mr. scarborough is not at this table because we had a heated one-on-one about first and second amendment about video games, comparing it to slippery slope on the second amendment. i've done a lot of research since then. i want to go back at him on that. this is a black-and-white issue again. to draw the line and say that in some way, shape or form we are going back to the founde

and joe manchin, and asked them what they think about how we got here and how we go forward. >> we have forgotten how to do the art of the deal. it's been so long since this government has put together any kind of deal between parties. heaven forbid the next generation come up thinking this is the normal way forward. this is not the normal way forward. this represents a broken system. >> if we quit thinking about the next election and start thinking about the next generation, we're going to make it through our lives just fine. it's what we're living behind. and they're going to have to come together sooner or later. >> there you heard it. it's the short term thinking creating potentially huge long-term costs for the american economy. >> the down grading of the u.s. economy was a huge problem. of course, it hasn't yet resulted in higher interest rates. a lot of people might say, look, who cares? let's be complacent. let's not worry about another downgrade. who cares? do people get it, in washington, that's it's important? >> it almost seems to be an afterthought in all of the chest thump

a-rated democrats from the nra, joe manchin, obviously, bob casey of pennsylvania, both may be able to add to that pressure specifically as it speaks to the issue of gun control. >> david, i want to talk to you about women and not in a brent musberger sort of way but a real way. you write about the durt of women in the cabinet and susan rice and fell apart and that's not been replaced by anybody and looking at three women for 15 cabinet posts. not the diversity we would expect from obama that we would hope for from obama and it seems or a little late in the game to make up for that. so is he just going to be behind the eight ball now? >> well, you know, it is interesting because women's issues as you know is a big issue in the campaign. the president made it an issue and as did the republicans and the president trying to drive a wedge and won 55% of the women's vote and i think he made the point, you know, he wanted women's health issues and equality in pay and same time with the departure of hillary clinton, you are looking at a national security cabinet all men and there is concer

is facing resistance from fellow democrats as well. look at joe manchin, the senator from west virginia, after the tragedy in newtown, he suggested even though he's a more conservative democrat from west virginia he might be supportive of an assault -- a ban on assault weapons and he's now walking that back a bit. senator al franken from minnesota, up for reelection in 2014, a liberal democrat, not conservative democrat. suggested yesterday he wasn't sure about a ban on assault weapons and today he's clarifying in fact he supports what he says is the principle of banning assault weapons, but didn't specifically say he supports legislation to ban those assault weapons. and so, it's interesting, because jay carney at the daily briefing today got a lot of questions of bringing democrats along, he says the president is confident after lobbying, and going out on the road eventually that some of these lawmakers will come along, take a listen. >> he firmly believes they are and he'll be having that covering with republicans and democrats and with americans more broadly. again, i think you've s

, if the president wanted to get any, any modification to the nation's weapons laws, he had a moment. joe manchin, the senator from west virginia and bob casey, senator from pennsylvania, pro-gun democrats said let's talk about this, let's have a discussion. if barack obama wanted to have a change, it wouldn't have been probably a sweeping large change, but could have had something, that might have dealt with mental health issues, might have been gun show loophole. it might have had something to do with the size of magazines available for weapons, but he had a moment he could have turned to those guys and said work up legislation, i'll get behind it and help you sell. instead what the president said was, we're going to go big, go for a big comprehensive solution and what that did was send the message to pro-gun democrats and to all of the republican party, the president means to crack down on guns and he's going to use this as an opportunity to do it and it basically froze the conversation. >> megyn: and it also led to a huge spike in gun sales at various places, you know, across the united state
